Starting on Wednesday, October 7th, 2020 OFI Eligibility Specialists that would normally staff the statewide call queue will be dedicated to case processing to allow them to process the large number of applications, renewals, and changes we have recently received. This will continue every Wednesday thereafter until further notice. However, clerical call center agents will still be available and can assist you with things like: Getting a status update on your case, print and mailing of applications, recertifications, case print outs and other documents.
